I'm not opposed to adding this if you think it will help, but I'm
skeptical of whether a toolchain targeting OpenBSD can produce a
working musl build anyway. Are you trying to get something that runs
on OpenBSD or use the OpenBSD compiler as a makeshift cross compiler
to get a normal Linux build?

What are the linker errors you hit? It's not surprising that compiling
would work since no files external to the musl source tree are
accessed during compiling, but linking could bring in lots of issues,
and runtime even more.
